About Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP

Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP is a leading global law firm providing innovative legal services and business solutions to individuals and institutions. Our global investigations and compliance practice brings together firm lawyers who have deep substantive experience in specific industry sectors, and lawyers with proven track records of leading important investigations both in private practice and in government service on behalf of prosecutors’ offices, regulatory agencies and legislative committees. Our nuanced understanding both of our clients’ businesses and the legal environment in which our clients operate enables us to partner with them to design front-end compliance programs that meet business and legal objectives. However, in those instances where compliance efforts fail to forestall a problem, our experienced team draws on its extensive knowledge of the kind of internal reviews that government officials will demand as we ferret out facts before government agencies come knocking or, alternatively, help clients navigate the often conflicting requirements of government entities after regulators become aware of problems. Our global investigations and compliance practice is international in scope and includes lawyers in both our firm’s national and international offices. Given the breadth of our experience, we are situated to represent the interests of our clients in the full range of investigative proceedings that have become increasingly common in today’s global economy, and we regularly work with our clients’ in-house and outside advisors to address the marketplace concerns that often arise during such investigations.
